The hydel power generation units of Water and Power Development Authority have contributed 4.358 billion more units during the last fiscal year as compared to the previous corresponding year, registering 36 per cent increase.

Sources told APP in Islamabad on Sunday that 31.425 billion units of low cost hydel were delivered to the national grid system during last fiscal year.

They said generation of more units was possible owing to completion of much delayed three mega projects including 969 MW Neelum Jhelum, 1410 MW Tarbela 4th Extension and 108 MW Golen Gol hydropower.

The sources said a total of 2,487 MW accumulative capacity was added to the national grid system with commissioning of the said projects.

They said the installed generation capacity of WAPDA hydroelectric power has also jumped to 9,389 MW from 6902 MW.
